Tempe, AZ, January 23, 2020 – Aurora, a leading full-service provider (FSP) in the payments industry, has finalized a growth capital transaction to Harmony Pay. The investment for Harmony Pay will advance the payments industry with enhancements to software solutions.
Aurora’s investment and partnership with Harmony Pay, a Florida-based payment processing company, will lead to the completion of development and integration of payments software for the health and beauty industry. The initial footprint of the technology creates efficiencies for salon business owners and offers a better customer experience through a mobile app and streamlined in-store payment solutions.
Founder of Harmony Pay, Dat Nguyen started his career in the salon industry back in the late 90’s. He grew curious about the payments industry in 2004 by recognizing the need for more than the standalone terminal for salon business owners.
“I knew I had a unique opportunity to develop technology to change the way salons do business,” said Dat Nguyen, CEO & Founder of Harmony Pay. “It was an easy choice turning to a trusted partner, Aurora, for the investment and support to build a better payments software for salon owners and businesses.”
Aurora’s investment in Harmony Pay and the development of the payments software will not only help the payments industry with the availability of integrated, vertical-focused software, but it also provides merchants the ability to make technological advancements in their business.
“What we run into a lot with software companies is they are phenomenal technologists. They create great point of sales systems or vertical software, gateways, etc., The challenge we generally see is they don’t have great distribution in many cases,” stated Brian Goudie, CEO of Aurora. “We have distribution and did not have the vertical salon software product. Meeting an entrepreneur like Dat created an opportunity to put those two together.”
